Default Predator 212 stage 1 Exhaust ?

So are any of the exhausts available quieter than a straight pipe while still allowing good airflow? if so any recommendations?

I don't know about your preferences, but my Briggs with a header is loud, but tolerably so for me.
My neighbors don't even object, but I don't know your situation and preferences. If you haven't installed a header on your 212 yet, I would put it on, see how you like it, and if you or others find it too loud, then put a muffler on.
There are high flow mufflers on the market:
The usual go-to is the RLV muffler, which you can get from GoPowerSports, BMIKarts, OMBWarehouse, etc.
Or you can go to the local lawn mower shop(Or the internet) and get one of these:
